    Most of what I have read about Critical Defense deals with performance out of sub-compact type pistols. Would there be any concerns in using this ammo with a 4-4.5 inch barrel (Glock 17/19)?

    Thanks in advance.

    There would be no problem using them in a standard length barrel. I understand they expand at low velocities, but for some reason I recall that they are like Federal PD ammo in that velocities are lower than other loads.

    After reading of the problems with primers and such I would skip on them all togather I also dont like the 20 or 25 round box
